    I want both of the exclusive sets because I really like the Titans Return line and although I'm don't totally need all the figures in the sets there aren't any that I don't want, if that makes sense.

    I want both Optimus molds and Quickswitch because I'm not getting the regular releases of those molds (except for Octane when he comes out) and I really want Nautica. Everything else is just a nice bonus.

    Now I just need to find the TRU exclusive set around here, which I haven't in the two stores I've been to. Seems like Washington might be the only place that has that, and I might try there today, depending on how the day goes.

    I found the Velocitron set at the Wyomissing Toys R Us yesterday morning. I grabbed all three. One was for me. The other two were for other collectors. One guy paid for his but the other ended up backing out when he found a set near where he lives. So, if anybody is interested in the last one. Let me know. If you are local, we can meet up and am willing to ship if necessary.

    I know the hype is around the Velocitron set, but I just got my preorders from The Chosen Prime and I already found a few, so I have:

    Voyager Optimus
    Voyager Megatron
    Deluxe Hot Rod
    Deluxe Twinferno
    Titan Master Fangry
    Titan Master Sawback
    Titan Master Ptero

    Available if anyone is looking for them. Local meet up (SE PA) just for costs ($25 Voyager, $15 Deluxe, $6 Titan Master), or I'll ship but you'd cover shipping.
    If not, they'll go back to local stores. Thanks!

    Washington TRU did not have any exclusive sets.

    I'd be tempted for this but I think shipping would kinda kill it. Take it to at least $120 I bet.

    Hey, guys, I sold the set yesterday but I will keep an eye out for more sets to hook people up with. Also, I currently live on the eastern side of the state around Reading. However, I am originally from a town near Pittsburgh. So, if you are in that area, we could meet up in person next time i come into town to visit my family.

    Here's hoping it shows up in the Pgh area in decent numbers anyway. I mean we have a fair number of TRUs...

    If anyone finds an extra Velocitron boxset, let me know as well. I live in the Johnstown area but visit Altoona, Greensburg, and Cumberland, MD quite a lot. I am having no luck finding these and it's getting frustrating. I'm too old for the hunt.

    Anyway, Altoona TRU has TR Hot Rod, Triggerhappy, Twinferno, and Getaway.

    As far as the Velocitron set, if you call TRU and ask for item 758111 that will see if it's in stock. They can also do a lookup of local stores so you can head there after putting it on hold.

    I checked all the TRUs in the Pittsburgh area. Monroeville and Washington (schide said he went there and there were none) show one. No one else has any. I'll keep a look out in the system for everyone in the Pittsburgh area.

    If anyone still needs Sixshot, check your local Wal-Marts. Two were spotted this morning at Franklin Mills Wal-Mart and they had one at the Tullytown Wal-Mart but it went home with me.

    I'm giving up on the box set, but if anyone wants to part with the Optimus for around $30 or so HMU. The other box set has way more for me.

    I'm also looking for the Velocitron set. Thanks for posting the item number (758111), un_chakal!

    Should we start a list of who's looking for the Velocitron set, and their general geographic location?

    I think that would be a great idea! If PA fans who want the boxset want to PM me with their user name, geographic location, and whether they would want shipped or local I would be happy to put the list together.

    I had to get my set in Maryland, but if I see another I'll snag it for those in need.
